Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

Time to get your try on

Many say this is a year that should just be cancelled, however, I believe this is a year that can be used...

r It was a bright, sunny day on May 4 when Maple Mountain High School hosted the eighth annual Super Stars Track and Field Meet for special education students in Nebo School District. School buses brought in 270 special young people and their instructors. The athletic department, headed by Dave Boyack, provided staff and students to assist in supervising this day of sharing at the school track.

Each special needs student was teamed up with a high school student to help them through the events. Nine track and field events were simultaneously conducted for the young special needs athletes.

The track activities of the day included the 50-, 100-, 200- and 400-meter dash around the big red oval as well as a wheel chair race. Additional field events included the short jump, running long jump, high jump and a very popular baseball throw. All of the special education students received a medal to hang around their neck, a T-shirt and a fantastic experience for participating.

It wasn’t only the special education students that had a wonderful experience; it was also an amazing experience for the high school students who paired up with the young visitors at the track meet.

It was an amazing and emotional day for everyone who witnessed the facial expressions of all the students who participated in the Nebo School District Special Education Super Stars Track and Field Meet. It is impossible to describe in words the emotion that these kids stirred as they experienced track and field events that were a new experience for most and a fun outdoor experience for all. They all did their best. The expressions on the faces of the high school students that helped carry out this memorable day was also priceless and will be a day to remember.
